UK - The Ministry of Defence has denied claims it threatened scientist David Kelly with the loss of his pension when he was reprimanded only weeks before his apparent suicide.
The scientist took his life after admitting he held talks with a BBC journalist before making its claim that the government “sexed-up” a dossier about weapons in Iraq.
The MoD said the scientist was told he would not face disciplinary action because he had come forward and was given a “mild reprimand”.
But reports suggest that threats were made – including that his civil service pension might no longer be safe.
